* While people are rightfully going to have more fond memories of the Oompa-Loompa songs from the original (especially with that [[EarWorm catchy refrain]]), Danny Elfman's ability to take the lyrics from Dahl's novel and set them to various musical genres is commendable in itself. They may not be as memorable, but it doesn't make the sequences any less fun.

Augustus's is '40s mambo, Violet's is '70s Blaxploitation funk, Veruca's is '60s psychedelic rock, Mike's is early '80s Progressive Rock.



* "It Must Be Believed to Be Seen", the Act One finale and Willy Wonka's introductory song, is [[AwesomeMusic/{{Theatre}} a terrific song]] in and of itself. The staging makes it even more spectacular -- the ObfuscatingDisability trick that sets up an InstantCostumeChange...the entire assembled crowd of Golden Ticket finders and press becoming a troupe of backup dancers seemingly out of sheer reverence...the gloomy factory's windows first being lit up with a deft wave of his cane and then changing colors until the whole place looks like the mothership from ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind''...the delightfully ominous DoorClosesEnding. If the right kind of LargeHam is playing Wonka (and Creator/DouglasHodge, the role originator, was indeed that), the cumulative effect of all this is a sense of sheer ''power'' rolling over the audience.

** Each musical number is a fun little parody/{{Expy}} and they have a number of GeniusBonus shout-outs. ''Augustus Gloop'' nods to the song style of the 1971 film; ''Violet Beauregard'' is a little nod to techno/funk; ''Veruca Salt'' is a gentle ballad with a Beatles vibe; and ''Mike Teavee'' has punk anger and a spray of pop-culture references (along with another nod to the Beatles in its bridge).
